This lesson plan was created using the four components of statistical problem solving as outlined in the "Guidelines for Assessment and Instruction in Statistics Education (GAISE) Report". Throughout this lesson plan students explore how to conduct a study of students' favorite chocolate in order to determine the class favorite and/or least favorite from among four choices. Students must determine how to collect the data, display the data, and the best method to interpret the data. Pictographs, sums of rankings, median scores, and bar graphs are the four methods outlined in this lesson plan for interpreting the data. The lesson plan includes an assessment and data collection sheet in pdf format.
